Pass the tool in the open position over the tie wire and vine widely ...
...without using too much force close the tool until the wire is clampen in the aperture
Open the tool again and withdraw it so that ...
...it can be closed just in front of the tie wire and vine. The closer to the vine the tighter the binding.
Close the tool without using too much force until a slight click is heard.
The loop is now clamped in the aperture.
Open the tool again and lift it off while still open until the the wire loop is pulled out of the head.
completion of work
Take it slowly and carefully to begin with!
After a little training period you will then be able to work confidently and quickly.
Slacken knurled nut and remove old reel.
Insert new reel with the three knobs downwards.
Push in knurled nut and then tighten until the reel is lightly braked.
Pull out approximately 15 cm of wire and thread it through the wire guide and nozzle.
Bend approximately 1 cm of the end of the upwards in the direction of the press-in device.
Close the tool until the wire is held.
Turn the knurled nut counter-clockwise to slacken the reel brake until the tool opens on its own.
The wire reel must not unroll.
Use a thumb to form a loop in the wire and close the tool without exerting too much force until a slight click is heard.
Fix small problems
Each new tool is functionally tested and precisely adjusted by us. If defects occur in the course of time, these can be rectified as described below and shown in the illustrations.
The wire no longer twirls properly.
a) Bit of wire or foreign bodies may be gathered in the head.
These must be removed.
See picture top left.
b)The wire loop can be pulled out too easily.
Tighten the adjusting screw in the head half a turn, repeat as necessary until the binding again operates properly.
See picture top right.
Caution: The spring must not be closed completely by the adjusting screw!
Do the finger nail test.
See picture bottom left.
c)The adjusting screw may be hent by striking the stop.
Check that the tongue is lightly spring-loaded.Carry out the finger nail test.
If the adjusting screw is bent, it must be replaced.
a) ...The shaft is rotated too far or the ratchet does not engage.
The return stop should always engage in the ratchet with the minimum backlash , max. 1 mm.
This can be adjusted by shifting the pedestal and carrier. To do this slacken the screw, slide the pedestal 1 mm forwards or backwards, retighten the screw and carry out a binding test.
b) ...The wire slips through between the aperture and shaft.
The aperture must always lie on the shaft.Slacken the screw, firmly press down the aperture using the thumb and then tighten the screw.
The helix no longer returns on its own.
a)The helix no longer returns on its own.
Remove the old spring as follows.
Hold the helix in the pushed-in position, insert the special screwdriver through the opening in the blade tube and unscrew the piston.
Using a 2 mm drift, drive out the pin from the piston far enough to enable the new spring to be pushed in. Push the spring into place and drive in the pin until flush.
Fitting new spring
Insert the special screwdriver through the spring into the piston slot.
Insert the piston with the spring and screwdriver into the opening of the blade tube and rotate clockwise until the piston is securely seated.
Using the steel wire hook, withdraw the eye of the spring approximately 20 mm from the tube and clip the blanking cap in place. Press in the strap of the blanking cap far enough so that the spring cannot hang out. Make sure the spring is not jammed.
Allow the spring to return until the blanking cap lies on the blade tube.
b)The helix may be bent.
in this case the helix must be either straightened or replaced. We recommend that the repair be carried out by us.
The shaft can not be rotated further.
The rubber pad in the block may have softened or fallen out due to the use of the incorrect oil or a solvent.
Fitting a new rubber pad.
Clean the pedestal, without removing it, using a nitro solvent or similar substance. Apply contact adhesive (Pattex) to three sides of the rubber pad and the contact points in the pedestal, slide in until flush and press down using pliers.
The tension spring has broken
Remove the bits of the old spring. Using a 3mm drift, drive back the clamping pin until the slot for the spring is clear. Position a new spring using the elongated eye end and drive in the pin. Using the steel wire hook pull the round eye end over the retaining pin and press in with the thumb without bending.
The helix should always be covered with a light film of oil.
Withdraw the helix to oil.
There must always be a light film of oil in the area of the blade and between the return stop and ratchet. Oil these areas as necessary.
The area of the wire catcher and the aperture must be kept free of oil, because bits of the wire to adhere.
Lightly oil the wire guide slot daily (1 drop of oil).
Oil the joints once a year.
After the tool has been used,
particularity after working in damp weather, leave the unit to dry out unpacked. Oil as necessary.
Use only BELI special oil, available from us.
